Herbert W. Armstrong

Armstrong (Worldwide Church of God), prophesied that the Day of the Lord would happen in 1936 (failed). When that prophecy failed to come to pass, Armstrong updated his prophecy with one many years into the future, 1975 (failed).

His record of false prophecies includes an amazing 209 documented cases of failure; (http://hwarmstrong.com/prophet-1.htm)

Too many to go into here, suffice it to say that any man who claims direct revelation and expounds even one false prophecy, in him is not found the word of God, and in whom there should be no trust placed.

Deuteronomy 18:22 ‘And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor comes to pass, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously.’

I John 4:1 ‘Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.’

This man proved by his repeated offenses that he was as false a teacher as it gets and the documentation of this is extensive.

The many issues that arose from his mismanagement of the Worldwide Church of God, including Armstrong’s inability to explain why people at the top of church hierarchy lived lavish lifestyles while expecting the congregants to pay first, second and third tithes, to the extent of expecting them to take out loans to meet these spurious financial obligations are just some of the reasons to look askance at anything emanating from this self-proclaimed oracle of God.
